DECEMBER TJ of the MONTH CONTEST!!! Hendrix IS THE WINNER!!!

Congrats bud. Read the rules to figure out how to claim your prizes.

John Hendrix/Dumpster Dive TJ

Hendrix

1997 Jeep Wrangler Sport TJ (114 inch WB)

4.0 L /AW4/231J/SYE/Novak cable shifter

Axles:

JK D30, BTF diff cover, Synergy sleeves, and C gusset kit
JKD44 with spring under conversion and U bolt eliminators
37/12.50/17 Goodyear MTRK
JK Moab wheels painted gunmetal gray

Modifications:
· JJ control arms uppers and lowers
· Fox Front COs 2.0
· XJ rear Leafs and Fox 2.0 shocks
· Derale remote trans cooler with fan
· Currie Anti-rock
· PSC hydro assist, Extreme steering gear
· ROKMEN Hi-Line fenders with custom trimmed hood
· ROKMEN rear cross member bumper
· ROKMEN tailgate
· CJ tailgate that I can swap out at anytime
· Mastercraft seats
· BTF cage kit with custom seat mounts and mastercraft harnesses
· ROKMEN Steering box Skid
· Custom Flat High Clearance Skid
· Ruffstuff Custom 1 Ton HD steering and track bar 1.5 inch thick wall D.O.M.
· ROKMEN Mercenary Rockers with Custom corners
· ROKMEN L-TJ front bumper
· Warn winch with synthetic cable
· Savvy LED taillights





Started as a TJ tub, cut and moved the rear of the tub forward to close out the cab, built a custom hard top, built a custom bed and stretched the frame to fit it all on a 114 inch WB. I built this Jeep not as a Hardcore wheeler, but as a Daily Driver street queen with some mild wheeling in mind. I hope to hit some trails in 2014.
.
Plans in the works: Finish the stereo system, install the heated seats, JW speaker headlights, Lots of LED lights, Ten factory axle shafts, 5:13 gears, ARB lockers, Build a Custom cage inside the cab and in the bed then just enjoy. NOT FOR SALE


Here it is guys and gals. I spent the last 2 years building a vision of a Jeep from nothing more than a pile of scrap parts. I tried to stay close to the original vision as possible it was tough and easy at the same time. The budget restraints kept me from deviating from the plan to far. This is my third Jeep build I believe I have 2 more left I want to build.
